It can get costly to decorate your home. Try skipping the overpriced décor and craft your own accent pieces to give your home a more personal feel. Sellers in the Toronto real estate market have found the average return at resale for home improvement projects is 65% of a project’s cost when the home is sold. Below are DIY living room decor ideas you must give a try!
Colorful Light Fixture
A fun way to add color with a lot more drama and interest is through the use of colorful lighting fixtures. Whether your taste runs to bold and bright or soft pastels, you can use lighting to add color to space, especially if the rest of your room has a neutral color palette. Do you have old, outdated light fixtures? Have you been thinking of replacing them? Before getting rid of it/them, just imagine adding a little paint. Think about it, even if painting them doesn’t work out and you still hate them, you’re only out less than $10 (for the paint and tape).
Well, it all comes down to a style statement and standing out in the end. Painted bricks are a way to stand out from the crowd and to make your house look unique and fresh. We love how painted bricks tend to add texture onto the house without being busy. Many times, the natural color of the bricks you’re using does not go along with the aesthetic you had in mind for your house. Or maybe you are looking for an easy way to update and refresh the feel of your home. Painting bricks in your choice of colors can expand your options.
DIY Coffee Table
Do you want to add some pizzazz to your living room without spending a fortune? A DIY coffee table may just be your answer. Coffee tables come in all sorts and sizes but finding the right one for you and your home might get a little bit tricky. Luckily there is always the option of creating one yourself, one that will satisfy your needs and personal taste. There are so many different options to choose from, a door slab table, polished concrete table, wine crate table, nested coffee tables and finally a window coffee table.
DIY Floating Shelves
Floating shelves don’t take up any floor space and fit practically anywhere. No matter how big or small your home, there’s a spot that could benefit from a little bit of added storage. Floating wall shelves are perfect for displaying your collectibles, photos, travel mementos or just about anything. Without the brackets and clunky hardware you’d find with store-bought shelves or kits, they seem to be suspended in midair.
DIY Pallet Wall
The look of rustic wood has never been hotter, and with a DIY pallet wall project, you can bring this great look to any part of your home. First things first, look for free pallets. Pick the best pallets out of the bunch and clean them up. Take them apart (be careful) and begin to build your wall!
